The smug look on George Stephanopoulos’ face when he told Ron Paul that he’d be willing to bet his last dollar the Good Doctor has no chance of winning the GOP presidential nomination says all we need to know about our ruling elites and political gatekeepers, who have already decided who’s a winner and who’s a loser a year before the official results are in. Yet there’s a groundswell of grassroots support welling up from the American heartland that can’t and won’t be denied, as KOTV in Oklahoma reports:
“Oklahomans are still seven months away from casting a presidential ballot, but campaign signs are already starting to pop up. The News On 6’s Ashli Sims reports you might be surprised to see whose name is on the sign. Hillary, Obama, Giuliani, McCain, they may be the media darlings, but some of the first political signs to spring up in Tulsa don’t belong to any of them. The man who seems to be winning the grassroots race in Green Country so far is Republican long-shot Ron Paul.”
Here‘s the video.
Our know-it-all elites, in politics and the media, are in for a big surprise.
By the way, I’ll be speaking at a Ron Paul for President rally, in Mountain View, California, next door to Google headquarters, on July 14: that’s a Saturday, and so if you’re in the area and want to stop by and say hello, please do. Ron Paul will be there, along with other speakers: go here for information.
